July 30th is Medicare’s 46th anniversary, and this marks an important opportunity to highlight how improved Medicare-for-allnot cuts to our vital social insurance programs–is the solution to our health and fiscal crisis.

We asked single-payer supporters to organize events in honor of Medicare’s 46th anniversary and we’re incredibly excited about the response! Events are listed to the right.

Show your support for the protection and expansion of Medicare by attending one or more of the rallies, discussions, and/or meetings.

If you don’t see an event near you, organize your own. We compiled great resources for inspiration and guidance here, including an organizer’s toolkit and a sample flyer.

Email us at to let us know about your event. We can send you “Medicare: The Solution, Not the Problem!” signs and postcards addressed to Congress urging them to support Medicare-for-all.

If you can’t organize an event, but still want to support the protection of Medicare this month, you can participate in our “Why I Want Medicare for All” video campaign and mark your calendar for a national call-in day to Congress on Monday, July 25th.
